just got my cs 008 this last week. started off (after dry run) with baby backs (3). turned out pretty good, really moist, but not enough smoke flavor.
8 lb. brisket was next. cooked to 190*. been smoking for years on wood smokers, but never had such a tender moist brisket, nice bark, but still not enough smoke flavor. i used 4 oz. hickory and one piece of charcoal. cooked a little over 16 hours, started it last night. boy how nice to get some sleep!!! will 6 0z get'er done on the smoke? my wife thinks it has enough smoke flavor,, but i really don't. over all i am in love with the cs. have no real use for a larger one but i want one.. my wife would kill me..
